The Online Art Gallery Releases Its Exclusive Pantone Color of the Year 2018 Limited Edition Print Collection Featuring Works By Five International Artists, Inspired By Ultra Violet
SANTA MONICA, Calif., Jan. 01, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Saatchi Art, the world's leading online art gallery, has partnered with Pantone to create a collection of limited edition art prints inspired by the Pantone Color of the Year 2018 - Ultra Violet. The collection will be available for purchase beginning today, January 1, 2018, at limited.saatchiart.com
Pantone, recognized globally as the leading authority for color in design, worked closely with Saatchi Art to curate new works by international artists, working in painting and printmaking, that embody the spirit of Ultra Violet. Complex and contemplative, the enigmatic purple suggests the mysteries of the cosmos, the intrigue of what lies ahead, and the discoveries beyond where we are now. Nuanced and full of emotion, the depth of PANTONE® 18-3838 Ultra Violet symbolizes experimentation and non-conformity, spurring individuals to imagine their unique mark on the world, and push boundaries through creative outlets.
The collection features works by Teis Albers, Angie Jones, Alexander Jowett, Michael Lentz and Wendi Turchan. These limited edition prints will be available in a variety of sizes, and prices will range from $75 to $800 USD, with options to purchase framed or unframed.
"One of the most creative ways we support our artists is by collaborating with leading brands, and working with Pantone, who are entirely devoted to the creation of color, made absolute sense for us as an art gallery," said Rebecca Wilson, Chief Curator of Saatchi Art. "Together we selected five artists who have embraced the specific qualities of the new Color of the Year in order to capture cultural icons, create sublime abstracts and explore the color as a range of complementary tones. We are thrilled to be able to give people the chance to own these very special limited editions by outstanding emerging artists."
"As an expression of imagination and the creativity that Ultra Violet provokes, Pantone partnered with Saatchi Art to create a limited-edition collection of official Pantone Color of the Year 2018 prints. The collection includes new works by international artists, working in painting and printmaking, that embody the spirit of Ultra Violet, and will allow lovers of Pantone and art alike to experience Ultra Violet's inspiration in their daily lives," said Kathryn Shah, Vice President, Global Marketing of Pantone.
